Transatlantic with Street movie posterTransatlantic with Street - Trailer from SailFlix on Vimeo.

A film by Gavin Shaw
One of the first sailing documentaries shot on video.

Classic Atlantic ocean 5,000 mile trade wind passage shot in 1986 aboard noted sailor/author Don Street's 1905 engineless 44 foot yawl, Iolaire. Documents Iolair's ninth Atlantic crossing from Ireland with eleven ocean islands along the way to Christmas in the Caribbean. First landfall is Vigo in dense fog. Next, a short-handed 800 mile passage to Madeira. Then enroute to the Canaries, the desolate and dangerous Salvage Islands. The trade winds fill in at 20 N and it's an easy reach to the Verdes. From there, a fast 14-day run of 2100 miles with whales, water rationing, a leaky bilge bring Iolaire safely into Antigua just in time for Christmas.

Check out The Complete Street, which includes all 5 Don Street videos at a package price.
